Hi Karen Excellent trifle. Exactly like my mother-in-laws. Now I don't have to ask her to make it anymore...plus she would never give me the recipe. I guess that's a mother-in-law thing!!! Thanks again PS My husband thanks you too!

I plan on making this recipe but where do I find port wine gelatin and custard powder? I am from No.East Ohio USA and have never even heard of either. Please help me. Will be watching for your reply. Thanks....Lovestocook

I don't use port flavored gelatin but sherry instead. I use either chopped up angel cake or 'Ladys Fingers Sponge', place them in a bowl first and soak with sherry (or port) and I use a strawberry or raspberry jelly (jello). Depending on what state you live in, I know Publix & Albertson's in FL have a British section that sell custard in powder or ready made version or you can make your own custard. Trifle is so easy to make as you can tweak it to suit your palette.
